Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

While search the net I found a site that sells plaster much cheaper than art stores for you plaster crafters. Grin

I made this at school so i got the plaster extremely discounted, use dental geltrate for the mold, actually have no idea what the normal price of plaster is in craft shops

i really like your artist's statement on dev. art. it's amazing how when you know the artist's intention and potential audience, the piece really changes.

I have been looking for something like this!

A girl I work with has a wooden 'hand' on her desk to hold rings, bracelets, necklaces, etc.  I don't know how easy it would be to make one out of wood, but it beats having them jumbled up in a jewelry box.

If you don't have dental geltrate, I wonder if you could use wax and plaster of paris? 

I remember once doing a thing at a fair, where you dip your hands several times over in colored paraffin, and wind up with a rainbow colored wax hand.  Well, if you did that with plain paraffin, enough times that you could slip your hand out and the resulting wax form was thick enough to hold it's shape, you could pour plaster of paris into the mold and then remove the wax. 

It could work.
